Back again...

Last semester in the end one of my production team purchased a "Cooler Master" 320Gb hard drive off eBay for $179 (plus about $30 postage). It had both USB 2.0 and Firewire connections (thought was FW800, but might have only been FW400).

Looking on eBay now, there's a 400Gb drive of the same kind for $199, plus $29 postage...

It is a Samsung SATA drive... no mention of what chipset it uses...

Thoughts?
